Three young men–two brothers and their cousin–meet on a dense summer night to feel the ‘high’ of a dozen hasiklidika songs: rebetiko songs from the beginning of the 20th century that celebrate the effects of hashish. But beyond the pleasures of drugs, it is a question of love, of joy and sadness, a search for freedom and political commitment… Little by little, yesterday’s counterculture, made out of poverty and violence, and built on the pains of exile, reverberates the one of today.
